IMPACTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE: SOCIETY AND ECONOMICS


Item #d92aug83

Report of the Workshop on ENSO and Climate Change (Nov. 4-7, 1991, Bangkok, Thailand), 28 pp., 1992, no charge. Available from ESIG, NCAR, POB 3000, Boulder CO 80307.

From the third workshop of the multidisciplinary UNEP Working Group on the Socioeconomic Aspects of El Niņo Southern Oscillation. The group attempted to identify and assess current speculation about how ENSO might be altered under different global heating patterns in an atmosphere with increased greenhouse gas concentrations. A final statement relates to how climate change will affect societal-ENSO-environmental interactions.


Item #d92aug84

The Effects of Weather and Climate on Energy Supply and Demand, A Select Bibliography, Jan. 1992, $25. Order from C. Bedrosian, Cutter Info. Corp., 37 Broadway, Arlington MA 02174 (617-648-8700).


Item #d92aug85

Climate Change: Evaluating the Socio-Economic Impacts, 109 pp., 1991, $27. Consists of four papers prepared under the "Socio-Economic Aspects of Climate Change" activity of the OECD.

"Evaluating the Socio-Economic Impacts of Climate Change: An Introduction," D. Pearce (Econ. Dept., Univ. College, London), 9-20. Used agriculture and sea level rise as examples to point the way to improved impact assessment methodologies in general. Considerably more study will be needed to quantify these impacts for specific locations.

"Methodological Guidelines for Assessing the Socio-Economic Impacts of Climate Change on Agriculture," S. Sonka (Dept. Agric. Mgmt., Univ. Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, Ill.), 21-43. Reviewed key literature assessing the agricultural impacts of climate change to ascertain the state-of-the-art methods currently employed; documented the extent to which critical concerns (uncertainty, regionalization etc.) have been previously addressed; suggests improvements in existing agricultural impact assessment methodology.

"Modelling the Economic Impacts of Global Climate Change for Agriculture and Trade," S.R. Johnson (Ctr. Agric. & Rural Develop., Iowa State Univ., Ames, Ia.), 45-71. Addresses the choice of modeling methods by reviewing specific modeling issues for linking climate to agriculture and trade in agricultural commodities. Suggests a possible modeling approach using existing or extended and elaborated systems.

"Impacts of Sea Level Rise: An Economic Approach," H.M.A. Jansen (Inst. Environ. Studies, Free Univ., Amsterdam, Neth.), O.J. Kuik, C.K. Spiegel, 73-109. Consolidates available literature and suggests improvements in the methodological approach to assessing the impacts of climate-change-induced sea level rise.
